Are you a team player who takes direction well and is outgoing but works well with others?Also are you punctual, reliable and oh by the way, a very good swimmer who can pretend to drown? Well do we have the gig for you!
"Actresses" who feel the urge for some "acting" experience need look no further than Craigslist, which is a hotbed of activity for budding creatives who require help at very little (read: no) pay. So to be fair, this ad out of the Chicago area, while funny, is not particularly unique. That being said, enjoy and please, support the arts:
Short, simple independent film requiring 2 - 3 shoots only.
Must start soon in order to take advantage of the warm weather. One scene involves a swimming pool.
Looking for two young ladies in good physical shape to star in a simple short story
in the tradition of the Twilight Zone.
REQUIREMENTS: TEAM PLAYER, TAKES DIRECTION WELL, OUTGOING, WORKS WELL WITH OTHERS, PUNCTUAL, RELIABLE.....MUST BE A GOOD SWIMMER! WHO CAN PERFORM A CONVINCING DROWNING SCENE
The economy has hit us pretty hard so unfortunately there is no pay. (not even for me)

Hope to hear from you soon
The advertisement also includes 11 stills, presumably from previous footage shot, to give you a sense of the plot of this Twilight Zone-esque story.
